Nearly three billion people currently live in low elevation coastal areas around the world who are vulnerable to the effects of sea level rise.


Sea Rise City is a partnership between the United Nations and the city of Bristol. The long term project, acts as a model for future urbanism on water by replacing land which is lost to sea level rise by growing a floating bamboo landscape to act as a canvass for urbanism.


The construction of the landscape is facilitated by a floating off shore infrastructure, the headquarters of the 18th UN department, the department of Water & Climate Change. The landscape is home to 17 communities, subsidiary branches of the other UN departments which experiment with the many aspects involved with future urbanism on water leading to the generation of knowledge for future generations.
